Lawton Man Sentenced to More Than 32 Years for Violent Crimes

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – On January 5, 2018, JACKIE DUNCAN, 30, of Lawton, Oklahoma, was sentenced to 386 months in federal prison for his role in a robbery conspiracy, announced Mark A. Yancey, United States Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma.

A superseding indictment alleged that Duncan agreed with other members of the 107 Hoover Crips gang in Lawton, Oklahoma, to commit armed robbery.  It also charged him with various gun and drug offenses.  Among other things, the superseding indictment alleged that Duncan was involved in displaying a pistol after breaking into an apartment, where another member of the gang beat a resident in the head with a metal pipe.

A federal jury found Duncan guilty of one count of conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery, one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, two counts of interference with commerce by robbery, and two counts of brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.  The jury found him not guilty of one count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and one count of possessing and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

On January 5, 2018, United States District Court Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange sentenced Duncan to 386 months in federal prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release.

This case is the result of an investigation by the Lawton Police Department; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the Comanche County District Attorney’s Office.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Edward J. Kumiega, Kerry Blackburn, and Mark Stoneman prosecuted the case.
